Operation Christmas Child

blog 12


This year we have ditched the traditional office ‘Secret Santa’ in favour for being more charitable. Let’s be honest who really enjoys the reduced chocolates or a bath set in the run up to Christmas?

So we have decided join in with Operation Christmas Child ! The concept is simple; you pack a shoe box full of gifts to bring a little joy to a child in the festive season, the trickiest part is wrapping the shoe box itself!

Here at Orchid we have all been busy putting together our Operation Christmas Child  boxes, you can often find us of a morning having a chat over a coffee about what new items we have added. There are a range of categories such as boy or girl and what age the box is aimed at, so most people have diverse presents.

They are all ready to be taken to the drop-off centre now, and it certainly feels more rewarding than giving a box of Quality Street! We will be tracking our array of colouring books, toy cars and skipping ropes to name but a few things that we have shipped off.

Here is our Operation Christmas Child shoebox selfie! #OCCshoeboxselfie

Merry Christmas everyone.
